    I welded very little today, or yesterday for that matter. I did clear 25 birdnests of .045 Dual Shield. If I had hair, I'd be tearing it out. I don't know what to do! My plan for the weekend was building a new trailer hitch for the Top Kick truck. No, I did NOT finish.

    Too tight on the rollers probably. We don't use knurled either smooth ones like the hardwire uses.maybe loosen the front rollers if there's two sets. Could be a liner issue. Make sure that's smooth.

    You need to cherry-pick (MORE) jobs like this.

    It's a lot easier than bench pressing heavy parts under trucks. I was going to do this project out of the service truck in their yard, but it's been raining for 24 hours and they wanted it TODAY. The quote was reasonable to the owner to pick it up (10 miles each way) and bring it back.

    Root pass. Probably was a gap on the bottom weld too. That's why it's so small and tight.it gets Welded over right away with a second pass. We have issues welding it out and not get bubbles for some reason when u try and run a single pass to hot. Awalys got bubbles running single pass

    I would think that porosity would surface in the second pass.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    For those of you getting tired of me whining about my bad internet connection out in the sticks, I think I may finally have found a solution. Starlink. Problem is, despite living on an escarpment, my yard is actually in a hollow surrounded by tall trees near the top of the hill. Since the Starlink dish has to rotate to follow the satellites, I needed to get up above obstructions, so why build a tower when you have tall grain bins in the yard? This is pretty simple and yes, I know the welds are "farmer ugly" and it will get a couple braces once we finalize the dish angle. The tubing had a former life in a set of harrows on the back of a deep tiller, so it's pretty sturdy stuff.
